I really miss scenes like this. It's a little funny remembering that there were so many of these relatively inexpensive muscle cars around that I thought they'd be around forever. Especially the mid-late 60s Impala, Biscayne, Bel Air, etc.. They were everywhere.
Saw Disturbed twice in the early 2000s. Draiman's voice is (was?), to say the least, unique. And the band backing him was the perfect accompaniment, imho. My first time (at 45 years old) in a mosh pit was equally enjoyable and memorable. Those kids never stood a chance. What a blast!
What was the throttle down response like? I remember reading about the early turbo bikes and how they could really f*** you because there was an inherent delay throttling down and the engine's response. No thanks.
I recall back in high school a friend of my buddy had a Kawasaki 2 stroke 900 triple. For maybe a week. He took it out a couple of times, scared the crap out of himself and got rid of it. I heard him get on it once and when that thing was unleashed it just sounded evil.
Nice, I bet its quick!
My 1st road bike was a 72(?) CB350 twin in 1977. I think I paid $100 for it from the same friend I bought a '68 289 Mustang from about a month later for $200.
In '79 I bought a '78 CB550 and rode it for 16 years, including a trip in '81 from Rochester, NY to Rocky...
